♪ >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,
FOLKS.
WE'RE HERE WITH SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER.
I KNOW THAT IF THE CHECKS TO GO OUT, THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO
WANT HIS NAME ON THE NEXT ROUND OF CHECKS, AND YOU'VE INTRODUCED
THE NO P.R. ACT TO REMOVE THE PRESIDENT'S NAME FROM THE
CHECKS.
>> YEAH.
>> Stephen: DON'T YOU THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE A BIT OF A
TOUGH SELL TO GET HIM TO SIGN SOMETHING SAYING HE CAN'T SIGN
THINGS?
>> LOOK, THE POINT WAS TO POINT OUT SOMETHING, WHICH IS
PRESIDENT TRUMP, THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU, THIS IS NOT ABOUT
YOUR REELECTION, THIS IS ABOUT HELPING AMERICA, AND IF IT TAKES
SOME EXTRA TIME TO GET THESE LETTERS OUT, IF IT COSTS SOME
EXTRA MONEY BUT IT SENDS THE WRONG SIGNAL, THIS IS NOT A
POLITICAL -- THIS IS NOT SOMETHING TO GET POLITICAL GAIN
OUT OF.
WE SHOULD ALL BE WORKING TOGETHER TO SOLVE THIS -- ONE OF
THE MOST AWFUL PROBLEMS THE COUNTRY'S FACED, YOU KNOW, MAYBE
THE GREATEST PROBLEM SINCE WORLD WAR TWO, AND, INSTEAD, HE
SEEMS TO BE CONCERNED WITH FIGHTING HIS ENEMIES, PRAISING
HIMSELF, THAT'S A BAD IDEA.
SO IT WAS SORT OF SYMBOLIC.
>> Stephen: I KNOW YOU WANT TO PROTECT THE ELECTIONS AS YOU
SAID BEFORE.
>> YEAH.
>> Stephen: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT NEW YORK CANCELING THE
DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY?
DO YOU THINK THAT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO?
>> WELL, THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH CHOICE, I GUESS, BUT WE SHOULD
MAKE SURE THE ELECTIONS IN NOVEMBER ARE REALLY FAIR.
AS I SAID, MAKING SURE THAT EVERYBODY CAN VOTE BY MAIL IF
THEY WISH, MAKING SURE, IF THEY WANT TO SHOW UP IN PERSON, THEY
CAN, MAKING SURE THESE BARRIERS GO AWAY, THAT'S GOING TO BE A
BIG FIGHT ON THE NEXT BILL, BUT PRESERVING OUR DEMOCRACY AND NOT
LETTING THIS EVIL CORONAVIRUS GET IN THE WAY OF THE FAIRNESS
OF OUR ELECTIONS WOULD BE AN IMPORTANT THING.
SOME OF OUR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS MAY RESIST THIS, I HOPE NOT.
MANY ARE FOR IT, GOVERNOR DeWINE AND GOVERNOR HOGAN HAS
BEEN GREAT, SO IT SHOULDN'T BE A PARTISAN ISSUE.
>> Stephen: BACK TO THE NEW YORK PRIMARY, WHY NOT JUST
POSTPONE IT?
I UNDERSTAND NOW WE'RE IN A STATE OF CRISIS IN THE NEW YORK
HEALTH SYSTEM.
>> THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS -- >> Stephen: WHY POSTPONE IT?
DOESN'T THAT MAKE IT HARDER FOR JOE BIDEN?
I THINK IT'S 340 DELEGATES AND RIGHT NOW HE'S NOT AT 9,991, AND
IF HE GOES TO THE VIRTUAL CONVENTION IN NARNIA, WHEREVER
THEY'RE HOLDING IT, WITHOUT A FIRST ROUND VICTORY, IN THE
SECOND ROUND THE DELEGATES CAN VOTE FOR ANYONE THEY WANT.
IT COULD BE ANDREW CUOMO!
OH, MY GOD, ARE YOU TRYING TO GET ANDREW CUOMO NOMINATED?
>> IT'S THE STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS.
I HAVE NO SAY OVER THEM.
>> Stephen: I'M SURE THE SENATOR FROM NEW YORK DOESN'T
HAVE ANY SAY OVER WHAT HAPPENS IN THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY IN
NEW YORK.
>> THEY DID IT, I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT THEY MUST HAVE HAD GOOD
REASON.
I HAVEN'T HEARD MUCH OF AN OUTCRY FROM THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN,
SO I DON'T THINK THEY'RE TOO WORRIED ABOUT IT.
>> Stephen: OKAY.
BEFORE WE GO, I WANT TO ASK YOU ONE, I THINK, VERY IMPORTANT
QUESTION WHICH IS YOU HAVE BEEN IN PUBLIC LIFE FOR DECADES, WHAT
DOES IT SAY TO YOU ABOUT THIS MOMENT THAT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT,
LAST WEEK, RELEASED UFO FOOTAGE AND NO ONE CARES.
>> YES.
WELL, PROBABLY HARRY REID CARED.
HE WAS THE LEADER BEFORE ME.
>> Stephen: THAT'S WHAT I UNDERSTAND.
HE WAS FASCINATED WITH THIS STUFF.
>> HE WOULD ALWAYS SHOW ME THESE ARTICLES AND I WOULD READ THEM
AND I WOULD SAY, NO, HARRY.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IT SHOWS, IT SHOWS HOW THIS CRISIS HAS SO
CONSUMED US THAT NO ONE WOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THIS BECAUSE
WE'RE ALL CONSUMED BY THE CRISIS.
I WANT TO JUST SAY ONE MORE THING, STEPHEN.
WE WILL OVERCOME THIS.
YOU KNOW, NEW YORK WILL OVERCOME IT.
I SO LOVE NEW YORK.
AND IT'S A HORRIBLE THING HEARING TO HAVE THE DEATHS AND
THE ILLNESSES AND IT GETS YOU DOWN, BUT, YOU KNOW, EACH TIME
WE BOUNCE BACK.
I REMEMBER AFTER 9/11, THEY SAID NEW YORK'S FINISHED, NO ONE WHO
LIVES SOUTH OF CANAL STREET, NO BUSINESSES WILL WANT TO LOCATE
TO NEW YORK.
WE CAME BACK BIGGER, STRONGER THAN EVER.
WE NEW YORKERS ARE A STIFF, RESILIENT BREED, WE LOVE
NEW YORK, WE WILL OVERCOME THIS AND BE BACK.
>> Stephen: THAT IS THE TRUTH, SENATOR.
>> THANKS, STEPHEN.
>> Stephen: SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER, EVERYBODY.
THANKS FOR BEING HERE, SIR.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH PAUL GIAMATTI.
